The thing is: This Tournament is not planned to be fun for you. It is planned to be fun for the viewers. You as a participant have the duty to do the best you can to entertain. For that, you can get money if you win and some kind of "fame".
Would you like to go to a NBA Game, and one team leaves after the first quarter because they dont see any chance to win? it would be shit as hell, and the most of the audience will think 2 times about to buy a new ticket next time....
You damaged with this the organizers of this tournament! I'm pretty sure they will think twice about ever inviting you again....
btw. you complain about a counter comp? What do you think how the teams you played against so far think about your huge turtle godcomp? Rofl.....
I bet 90% of the guys that posted did not read the whole thing - if you actually did there would be no reason to whine. Let me sum up the basics for you:
They don't like team sitting, so, instead of the proposed rating decay they will implement the opposite (rating inflation), so the more you play the more you are rewarded
The are trying to tone down BM
They are trying to tone down warriors
Rogues are fine - the rest are doing too much damage
Mages had too much cc and dmg at the same time
PvP power with increase healing only for main spec healers (sps won;t be able to heal like mad)
CC is fine by them, but they have seen that some ppl have concerns so they keep an eye on it
Sps, destro locks and frost dks are being monitored for having a bit more burst than needed. Warrior, hunter and mage burst takes precedence
Random stuff about rbgs
Some more random stuff
Now, of course he didn't address everything, but this is a very well-thought post which, for the first time, is spot-on. It's not the best he could have done, but it's light years ahead of the worst - if those changes make it through, the game will be in a much better condition. Now, if you insist on whining something is going really wrong with you and you should consult your local psychiatrist. Also consult your nearest opthalmologist for impaired vision.
The negativity in here is reaching a whole new level. The PvP community whines about the blues not listening or reading the complaints of their players, and that even if they do, they never reply or give us anything.
Ghostcrawler now goes ahead and writes up a blog entry on what their main points of focus are right now, considering PvP balance, and all that most of you can come up with is an almost ad verbatim quote on how Blizzard sucks at balancing PvP, how they've missed this issue or that, or in general, just how bad of a job they're doing.
I don't think the blog entry is in any shape or form ment to be interpreted as some kind of a summary of the be-all, end-all fixes they're going to implement, or that every matter left outside of the entry hasn't even been considered nor noticed by Blizzard. To me, it's a rough synopsis that includes only the issues that the players themselves have been the most vocal about on the WoW forums, and it's not even supposed to include everything they feel is wrong in the game.
Hey guys, this weekend, Razer will be hosting 24h livestreams to raise money for the Extra-Life organization. Extra-Life is a non-profit organization that consists of raising money for Children's Miracle Network hospitals around the world.
Last year, Razer was able to raise 20.000$ but year this year we are aiming to raise at least 25.000$!
This can't be done without your help, so I encourage you to check out the live stream where players like Braindeadly, myself and a few others will play a variety of games for 24h to try to help this wonderful organization!
Extra Life began in 2008 as a way of honoring a young lady named Victoria Enmon. Tori’s battle against acute lymphoblastic leukemia inspired the Sarcastic Gamer Community in a way that is difficult to describe. Members sent in video games and bought gifts to keep Tori’s spirits up despite numerous hospital stays and three bouts with the deadly disease.
Tragically, we lost Tori to cancer in January 2008. Later that year, I asked my partners at Sarcastic Gamer if they would be interested in Extra Life, a 24-hour video game marathon to raise money for the hospital that treated and fought beside Tori. In 2008 and 2009 Extra Life raised a combined $302,000, 100 percent of which went directly to help kids like Tori at my local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital (Texas Children’s Hospital).
While thousands of gamers, more than 100 websites and more than 12,000 donors were happy to support Extra Life, many expressed their desire to raise money to help kids closer to home. In what I can only consider destiny, in 2009 I left behind my radio career and went to work full-time for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals as a Radiothon Director. This life-changing event gave me unique insight into an incredible non-profit organization that helps kids all over the United States and Canada.
I quickly realized that Children's Miracle Network Hospitals would be the perfect solution to expand Extra Life into more communities.
This year, when you sign up to play video games for 24 hours on Oct. 20, 2012, you won’t just be raising money for kids. You’ll be supporting LOCAL kids and their families. Kids right in your own backyard.
All the money you raise for Extra Life 2012 will go directly to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital of your choice.
Hey everyone! I just wanted to spread the word about an awesome charity event that will be taking place at 2 p.m. this afternoon and continuing for the next 10 days!
Child's Play is an incredible children's charity organization. For those of you that are unfamiliar with it, Child's Play has gamers get together to raise money for children's hospitals across North America, and the money is then used to buy video games and toys for the kids! I will be streaming alongside a few other people from Ottawa, and we will be donating all of the money that we receive to CHEO (Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario). The money will go towards buying video games for the kids stuck in the hospital at Christmas time.
I am not expecting everyone to donate, but everyone can do their part by following us on Facebook or Twitter! I will be putting together several giveaways throughout the event, so follow our social media and follow my stream to be entered for a chance to win!
